Official World Cup 2014 Thread

Re: Official World Cup 2014 Thread

Beating an unmotivated and bang average South Korea with a late winner is Indicitive of a magnificent performance :o

Some people must have pretty low definition of the word magnificent...

Belgium have by and large been bang average so far this tournament and may well have been knocked out if they were not in the weakest group of the tournament.

I hope for there sake there is plenty of improvement to come because they have been a Dissapointment so far in relation to the talent they have in there squad.

Did Carvalho just have a bad game or is that his normal standard? Horrendous performance for someone who's supposed to be worth 37m.

He's not worth 37M, that's he's release clause, they are both different things. And he's performance wasn't any good, but he's usually much better.

Some people see one player game or part of it, and just start the frenzy for the better or the worse.

Re: Official World Cup 2014 Thread

based on performance, think this would be the best line-up for Belgium

------------------------Courtois---------------------------

VdBorre--------Kompany--------Lombaerts------Vertonghen

-------------------------Witsel----------------------------

--------------------Fellaini--------------------------------

Mertens-------------------De Bruyne----------------Hazard

--------------------------Origi-----------------------------

Origi simply deserve a starting spot, he is our best player in the tournament so far. I prefer Lombaerts instead of VBuyten, mostly because the americans are really fast and I think Van Buyten won't be able to handle this.

Algeria v Germany. That is going to be a game!

playing with 10 players behind the ball, won't be very interesting imo

First half wasn't great, I agree, but the way they played in the second half was fantastic, especially considering that they were a man down. And compared to the two previous performances, this was much, much better.

If you would have actually followed the whole match, you would have seen what I meant.

I did watch the whole match thanks.

I saw a spirited display down to ten, as you would expect with most sides nothing that deserved quotes like Magnificent or anything of that sort.

Stick by what I said for the talent at Belgium's disposal they have been a Dissapointment, I was really looking forward to watching them but there football quite dull at times and the performances in general bang average.

They need to improve although the last 16 draw has been pretty kind, lucky for Belgium they have been drawn against such weak opponents so far.

Being solid at the back and not conceding, and at the same time creating more chances in the second half than they have all tournament long merits the label "magnificent". Besides, many big teams have been underwhelming in these group phases, yet have pulled through with almost maximum points.

Agreed that they would have to maintain a high level whilst playing a very strong USA team, but I'm confident they can achieve that by playing with the same spirit and determination as they did in the second half yesterday.

I could of played last night for Belgium and Korea still wouldn't have scored.

I thought the Koreans were a joke last night, They could of put that game to bed but they were all headless chickens around the box (NOT because of belgiums defence)

What keeping a clean sheet against South Korea and creating a couple of chances when down to ten against a far inferior team with almost no real quality is worthy of the term magnificent :P

God help up if somebody actually really plays well you will spontaneously combust :)

He definitely didn't have an horrendous performance, he was very good actually. He would always have a difficult game given the nature of the match (both teams needing a win thus highly neglecting midfield and defense cover). Now, 37 million sure is pornograhic but he certainly is more valuable then Luke Shaw.

Luke Shaw is British and that's worth an extra 20% +/- 10% on the market price to British clubs.

Because:

They have blanked my team Portugal 4-0.

They have Gotze & Muller.

They don't have Reus.

They are Germany.

:)

We neither have Gotze nor Muller. But we do have Götze and Müller.

I might add because their fans are the biggest grammar nazis around.
